• Clans Of Intrigue

    Mar 1, 2015

    However challenging – and at times frustrating – this swordplay drama is, there’s nonetheless enough reasons to stay watching and endure to the conclusion.

  • Death Duel

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Duel’ is a bleak, nihilistic swordplay film that embodies all of the qualities that one expects from a Chor Yuen adaptation of a Gu Long story.

  • Executioners From Shaolin

    Mar 10, 2015

    This masterful kung-fu drama shows how quickly Liang found his own way of conveying his thoughts to the audience.

  • Fist Of Fury II

    Mar 13, 2015

    Although still quite a way off classic standards, ‘Fist Of Fury II’ just goes to show that it is possible to make a “Bruceploitation” flick that is fun to watch.

  • Golgo 13

    Mar 21, 2015

    ‘Golgo 13’ seems to do so much right that it makes me wonder why this wasn’t the start of a series of films.

  • He Has Nothing But Kung Fu

    Mar 23, 2015

    This provides solid viewing for fans while the veterans will no doubt enjoy spotting the endless array of familiar faces in the background.

  • Iron Fisted Monk

    Mar 30, 2015

    Any Sammo Hung fan would love this film, as would anyone who enjoys old-school martial arts flicks.

  • Magnificent Wanderers

    Apr 19, 2015

    There are quite a few spurts of fight action, but these are in-keeping with the playful tone of the film and offer little spectacular.

  • Money Crazy

    Apr 25, 2015

    Though it’s not in the same league as the Michael Hui hits it tries to emulate, ‘Money Crazy’ is still reasonably entertaining and certainly better than Woo’s other ventures into the genre.

  • Snuff Bottle Connection

    May 29, 2015

    Without doubt this is a powerhouse film that will satisfy even the most demanding fans of the Jade Screen. Worth tracking down at all costs.

  • The Brave Archer

    Feb 26, 2015

    Unfortunately ‘The Brave Archer’ is one of Chang Cheh’s least assured efforts as he foolishly tries to fit in all of the sub-plots and characters of this vast novel.

  • The Call-Girls

    Oct 19, 2017

    It entertains, titillates and amuses, as well as throws in a hint of social commentary as afterthought, but it’s a giddy, gaudy way to spend some time, providing of course that the subject matter itself doesn’t offend one’s sensibilities to begin with.

  • The Dream Of The Red Chamber

    Mar 9, 2015

    Unfortunately, the film itself falls far short the sum of its dazzling parts, with a central love story too lightweight to sustain either the bulk of the plot or the grand tragedy of the climax.

  • The Instant Kung Fu Man

    Mar 29, 2015

    Any production that brings together a cast of this nature is worth watching, but the fact of the matter is that this isn’t as good as it should have been.

  • The Jade Tiger

    Apr 1, 2015

    Even fans of the convoluted martial world of the swordplay genre may find ‘Jade Tiger’ a tiresome 90 minutes.

  • The Secret Rivals, Part II

    May 21, 2015

    This sequel doesn’t match the original, but there are enough fresh ideas to make it watchable.

  • The Sentimental Swordsman

    May 22, 2015

    Chor Yuen is once again painstaking in his vision of the visual ambience of the martial world, while he also gets fine performances out of his cast.

  • The Shaolin Plot

    May 23, 2015

    Wong sets the screen alight with a stunning array of kicking that nearly steal the entire film. For this reason – and the assurance that this is a good film – ‘The Shaolin Plot’ is solid entertainment.
